The Ski and Snowboard club is open to all students from 5th grade to 12thgrade and all levels of abilities from novice (beginner) to the more advanced.

All snowboard and ski equipment can be brought to school the day of the ski trip and will be stored at school in a secured location. We will load the bus at the main school entrance at 3:20pm and return to school at 9:00pm. Please make arrangement to pick up your children at that time

It is important to note that although we have several chaperones, both in the chalet and skiing/snowboarding on the slopes, we rely on the student to come to us if a need arises. This is a great opportunity for students to be independent and be responsible. NLA Chaperone(s) can be found in the main chalet, 2nd floor in the Oak Room. We highly recommend students ski/snowboard with a buddy. Parents are always welcome to come join us. NLA discounted rates will apply.

Ski and Snowboard Chaperones are needed for each ski trip and lift ticket(s) and rental(s) are at no charge. The number of parent chaperones needed is determined by how many students sign up. Ratio is 1 chaperone per 15 skiers/snowboarders.

There are FREE “beginner” lessons available from Afton Alps Ski School for skiers and snowboarders and last for (1) hour. We strongly encourage students who are skiing/snowboarding for the first time, to sign up for beginner lessons! Please note: Intermediate to advanced group lessons are available for purchase at ski school for $40 for 2 hours. Parents can sign up through Afton Alps.
